-104

On the surface, this price for Houston seems like quite a decent sized number given their struggles this season. The Astros are just 18-25 and have already lost 12 games at home for the year. Its only the middle of May, so that's quite a lot of home losses already.

The Astros are handing the ball to Cristian Javier (2-1, 4.01 ERA). He hasn't exactly been sharp this season, giving up three home runs to date in 24 innings and more hits (20) than strikeouts (18) already. He does have dynamic splits to date this season, however. In three home starts, Javier has yielded just two earned runs over 18 innings of work and has a 2-0 record. Those starts also came against the Yankees, Blue Jays and Rangers.

It's a small sample size, but current Oakland hitters are just .103 collectively against Javier covering 29 plate appearances. That's not good. 

Oakland is sending youngster Joey Estes (1-0, 1.80) to the hill. He was decent in his first start this year against Seattle. 

Houston looks to be getting back on track here. The Astros have won six of the last seven games and they're going for the sweep of Oakland here in this one. The A's have dropped six of the last seven themselves and have really struggled to get any offense going in that time.
